RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s campaign is launching a television advertising campaign in Virginia ahead of the March 1 primary.

Clinton’s campaign announced in a news release Wednesday that it is running its first Virginia TV ads in the Richmond market.

The campaign says the 30-second spots, which highlight Clinton’s record on foreign policy, women’s rights and other issues, are part of an initial six-figure advertising buy. The campaign didn’t disclose exactly how much it will spend.

Clinton is running against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination. She enjoys a lead in Virginia polls and has the support of both the state’s U.S. senators and Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

Virginia is one of 11 states that will make up the so-called Super Tuesday Democratic primary contests on March 1.
